OK guys, since you are so impatient, i did a LITE version of patch which should work just double fine.

All advanced things (such as xbox 360 controller support for previous v1.04 of game, customizable configs, DI FFD, detection of all stuff, etc) was removed, and only profile and icon patching was left.

Download and enjoy, and dont forget to report about noticed bugs

http://voodooman.gta-action.ru/downloads/PsychoPadLiteInstallv1.0b.rar

Usage is pretty simple - run installer, select Psychonauts folder, install, enjoy. If you will create new profie, you will need to reapply patch, just run installed PsychoPadLite.exe from Psychonauts folder and enjoy updated profiles with proper x 360 controller ui))

Note: game has xbox original buttons for UI, but no LB and RB, ugly edges because of DXT compression and annoying animation - this was fixed and included both in lite and full versions

Meanwhile ill keep working on full version...

Im not quite finished this and need more Three-headed monkeys... i mean testers in my secret laboratory, to put my experiments on, before i can go with public release of full version.

Have 2 extra monkey heads?

Have Xinput-class gamepad or normal Dinput pad?

Finished game and have saves in different points of games?

You are not a lame-monkey and know how to disable UAC and what is false positive?

Then opt-in!

Hi all,

I just bought a Microsoft XBox360 controller to play my Steam version of Psychonauts with, and although it works with the game, I am still getting kb/m GUI prompts, plus some menus still require mouse control.

Googling led me to this thread. The patch seems to have been well-received over on the Steam forums, but I just wanted to check if anyone here has tried it, if there is still no official solution to this problem, and if anyone from DF has an opinion on this patch (I couldn't find any other threads or FAQs etc pertaining to this.).

Thanks!

I use this mod/patch thing, and it works great for me. It can take a while to install, but it switches all the prompts over to the proper controller buttons. The only oddity is that it'll tell you to not turn your Xbox off when you're saving the game.

Edit: Checking the game myself, it does look like the options menu needs mouse input for some reason, but I think the rest of the menus should navigate with a controller fine.

Thanks Syd, I installed the Lite patch and it worked great for me too.

Thanks for making this, Voodooman! If you're intending to polish it any further, the only thing I'd point out is that it's a little unclear in the install window (with the Browse button) that you need to direct it to your Psychonauts folder.

Thanks a lot this makes all the difference! I just whish I installed this earlier, so much confusion... now its second nature!

One suggestion: You should add a readme, I was a bit suspicious about the .exe (I was expecting simple image files or something), then I didn't immediately get that I had to change the path to my folder, and finally I was REALLY worried about my savegame. Fortunately everything worked perfectly, but the process could be a bit more transparent ;)

Bump to this thread. This should really be stickied it is a must if you want to play it with a controller.

Yeah, Voodooman doesn't get nearly enough cred for that patch.

Is there any way to manually edit parts of the game. I use ubuntu, and I didn't know if I could just extract the exe and edit some pointer files to make it work, as I obviously cannot use an exe in linux.

I was hoping this might fix my issue with weird right stick behavior (see http://www.doublefine.com/forums/viewthread/13676/ ) but when I tried the DL link I got

"Restricted Content

This file is no longer available."

:down:

Any mirrors? (Of the file, mirrors listed in the original post just go to other forums and the DL links there appear to be dead too.)

NM, found my answer... :down:

Waiting for voodooman to repost the file.

I'm planning on replaying my retail copy of Psychonauts soon and would really like to patch it to be able to use my 360 controller but none of the links on this page seem to be working. Has anyone got a spare copy of the file that they could upload for me (and others)? I'll be your best friend forever. Well, a week maybe... or a day, possibly an hour. Look, I'd just like a copy of this patch please! Pretty please?

The links on the GOG forums appear to work.

Also, welcome back to DFAF! :) Are you staying for long this time?

Aw, that's fantastic! Thank you so much for directing me there, flesk. I haven't played Psychonauts since it's initial release in 2005. I'm really looking forward to a replay of this (double) fine game!

Also, welcome back to DFAF! :) Are you staying for long this time?

Thanks for the welcome back. Sadly, I must depart once again tomorrow. I should be back in March though! I hope to catch up with you then.

Thanks again for the links to the patch. 'Tis much appreciated.
